A whip is a superior one-handed melee weapon in the flail weapon group.[Dr368:64][DSCS:121][MME:21]

A whip is an off-hand weapon. A character can use a whip to make attacks even while holding another one-handed weapon in the other hand, and can use the other one-handed weapon to make attacks even if it isn't an off-hand weapon. A whip also has reach, so a character wielding it can make attacks other than opportunity attacks on enemies either 1 or 2 squares away.

No class has proficiency with the whip as a class trait, but any character can become proficient by taking a Weapon Proficiency feat. Martial classes may also gain proficiency with the Whip Training multiclass feat.

The whip's price in Dragon magazine issue 368 and the Dark Sun Campaign Setting was 1 gp. Mordenkainen's Magnificent Emporium increased the price to 10 gp.
